Reply One of the saddest and more brilliant things I’ve ever seen. Jerry looks like he’s in bad shape. Still one of my favorite solos on Looks Like Rain Reply I was listening to it all in the parking lot Reply This show has one of the best buckets ever Reply Forget Live Aid….This was the place to be!!!!!!!! Reply I have to bust out my old ticket stubs to remember which day I went to here…. I'm thinkin' it was Sat… but it may have been Sun…either way… one of my first shows, we eventually worked our way up front for a while( yes, I was one of those.. only for this show though :- ) all I remember is that I was totally blown away by the whole scene… I think I still have a 'music never stopped' tie dye from that show in the closet somewhere…many silk screens, lol…. great memories Reply Wow, what a stellar LLR Reply Did UB40 open at this show? Reply I was there smashed up front against the stage… Phil had bass problems both days… he was pissed at one point. Nothing worse than static in your bass amp.THE FAT MAN ROCKS !! Reply I was there this weekend. What a killer place to see the dead. And this was my birthday that day. What a blast it was to see the dead and camp out that weekend. Reply I was there…What an Experience…God Bless you Ed Groce Reply Jerry looks sick in this one. Reply Unfortunately, trouble ahead…..jerry in red Reply Does anyone remember the Hendrix cover band in campground area from these shows? Time flowed like liquid then. Now I’m so old daytime dead would be my only option cause I need to sleep by 10. Thanks for the memories especially in this covid19 time of such uncertainty Reply 15:57 sums it all up.I miss the old "daze" Reply Great LLR! Reply Great times didn't miss a trip when they came to the fairgrounds. Thanks so much for this post. Reply Unfortunately, terrible camera work on such a good song Reply Steve Parrish; solid guy..Union. Reply This is the best! Thanks☺ Reply Beginning of Looks like rain always bores me a bit and then the 4 minute mark hits and all is forgotten and I love it Reply Sweet! Reply Trouble ahead , Jerry in red Reply We used to call Jerry Omar The Red Tent when he was that hurting back in the day. No one really tried to help him. Reply Hey now I was at these two shows did a drop of liquid on the way into the show Saturday they opened up with One Mo Saturday Night into Fire on the Mountain you can’t get any better than that to start a show we camped in the parking lot and and partied hard all weekend Ventura was a great venue to see the boys we called it the Dust Bowl! After the show they showed movies in the lot like REEFER MADNESSES and Mickey Mouse and all for the cost of a ticket for like $20 oh boy the good ole days Peace from Hawaii ☮️ Reply Like others have said, I don't know how Jerry can look so out of it but play such beautiful music. Reply It's so sad watching Jerry, he was on so much pain then Reply Drugs are bad. Poor Jerry. They took him. Reply just killer. love it… and the steve intvu cherry on top. thx for all who made this avail Reply 7:10 Wow Jerry really found a groove there and it feels so right. Reply Thanks for the video. I know I attended this show, as it was the day after Live Aid, but I can't claim to recall much! I do know we had a good time, but this wonderful recording helps me confirm that! Jerry does look like he's hurting, but his playing sparkles as ever, especially, of course, in the excellent LLR! Reply They. We were so high Reply The "Twenty years so far" tour Reply I want Steve's t-shirt! Reply Shitty camera work Reply That’s just like being cool in the pool. Reply I was born a year later In this city! Reply Was there , hard to believe almost 40 years ago Reply Man- he looked terrible Reply Any show with a Might As Well in it was a party. Reply Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think this was stock news footage done by the local station when the Dead didnt play at Live Aid. I remember the news story, but it might’ve been the day before. Anyway, this was OUR Live Aid !! Great to see big Steve too. For a second I thought he was gonna do a Garcia Rig Rundown. That’d had been grate! Reply I was at Ventura ‘84 and ‘85. Man those were such perfect weekends. The campground was so chill. All night long, early morning wake and bake, walking on the railroad tracks with friends and strangers…the fire on the mountain across the 101 freeway during Fire on the Mountain…. I drive past Ventura fairgrounds at least 25 times a year on the 101 and I always smile….some of my finest memories. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
